I have a Crystal report built off a DATASET in a visual Studios 2008 web application

the first DataTable in the Dataset has two DATETIME fields, however they do not show up in the crystal designer interface.  I've tried Verify Database and it says it is up to date.  

the Dataset is pulled from a MySQL db

Do they show as another data type like string?

ah... they were showing as MySql.Data.Types.MySqlDateTime instead of System.DateTime
